DPO showcase of Satch, Fats and Duke . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

No one can accuse the Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra of dereliction of duty when it comes to tickling the ears of Miami Valley music lovers. The latest proof is the DPO’s presentation of “Satchmo, Fats and The Duke” at Schuster Center, May 6 and 7. Louis Armstrong, Fats Waller and Duke Ellington were transcendental artists during the Jazz Age but the popularity of their music has not flagged. They will be expertly represented by multi-talented musician/vocalist Byron Stripling. Since portraying Armstrong in the musical, “Satchmo: America’s Musical Legend” demand for Stripling’s music has gone through the roof and he has performed with the Boston Pops, the National Symphony Orchestra and many others. Tickets for the concert range from $22 to $76 and are available by calling (888) 228-3630 or visiting www.daytonphilharmonic.com.
